Peach liquor carrots – Surprising sides!
Some time ago I asked what you would like to see more on this blog! Surprisingly a lot of you answered “sidedishes”. So far I focussed on the meat and fish I prepare due to time restrictions. Time for a chance! With these peach liquor carrots I bring you a surprising side to serve that can beat up against a beautiful piece of meat/chicken! Pour yourself a cocktail and save some of the liquor for this side! You won’t regret!

Peach liquor carrots
I love carrots but to be honest it took me a while to get them like I wanted! Somehow they would never get the lovely sweet and full flavor I remembered from home! I’ve tried quite some recipes using, honey, sugar, fruit juices, … Mostly ok but rarely good enough! Until I was making a cocktail in an experimenting mood and tried to add the peach liquor to my carrots who were simmering in my skillet on the BBQ. The peach liquor carrots were born!
I guess these experiments are the essential part of cooking! The result of those experiments can be quite surprising. I hope you see the recipes I bring as a source of inspiration to go out and experiment yourself! Just because it’s fun and you learn to know what you’re doing (btw: failing is a part of the learning process so don’t be scared). Hope to see some of your creations on social media soon! And if you’re not feeling comfortable experimenting, don’t worry this recipe rocks! Have a nice BBQ over there!
Carrots can be made in many different ways! I prefer them slowly baked in a cast iron pan! Some smokey touches from a firewood and a range of quality spices makes it even better! These peach liquor carrots are a sidedish feast! Perfect with a piece of red meat or chicken.
- 500 gr. Carrots
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- 1/2 tsp Cumin powder
- 1/2 tsp Ginger powder
- 1/2 tsp Curry powder
- Salt and Pepper at taste
- 1/3 cup Peach Liquor
- Parsley at taste
Add some olive oil to a cast iron pan and toss in the spices. Let simmer for a couple of minutes so their flavor can develop well!
Remove the peel of the carrots and quarter them endlong.
Add the carrots to the skillet (cast iron pan) and let simmer for about 10 min.
Add the peach liquor to the skillet and put back in the BBQ for a half hour at 150°C on a direct heat source. Stir halfway to prevent the carrots from burning and get a nice caramellisation on more carrots.
Test for doneness and taste. Add some more spices when desired and finish with salt, pepper and parsley.
